PACS-Can, in collaboration with Waterloo’s Balsillie School of International Affairs, will host a two-day workshop on Canadian engagement with UN Peacekeeping on September 21-22, 2017.  The workshop will feature a series of panels by Canadian scholars and practitioners on key issues in contemporary peacekeeping and on Canadian contributions to peacekeeping past, present, and future.  As part of the workshop, there will also be a public panel discussion on the evening of Thursday, September 21, which will take place in the CIGI Auditorium at the BSIA.  The panel will feature leading Canadian thinkers on Canadian international security policy – including Walter Dorn of Canadian Forces College, Jane Boulden of Royal Military College, and Mark Sedra from the Canadian International Council – who will discuss the transformation of peacekeeping, the dilemmas facing Canadian policy-makers as they contemplate a renewed peacekeeping commitment, and the ways in which Canada might most usefully contribute to current and future UN peace support operations.
